A lot of people accuse Rush of hiding behind a lot of synthesizers on this album, but I disagree. As Rush progressed out of the 70's, they were forced to face the fact that synthesizers were being used in music regularly, so instead of just using synthesizers, they perfected them. So many 80's bands sound corny when they throw in the synthesizers, Rush uses the synthesized sounds to complement their music - and doing so, they create a marvelous sound - an array of guitars, bass, drums, and synthesizers.
I'm not saying that everyone will like this album, but I do admire its progressive sounds, and its excellent use of synthesizers. The CD's sounds compliment the themes of the songs very well. Very few bands are so able to convey the sound of the song with the songs theme, but here Rush succeeds. Big Money, the CD's opener, starts out with a little guitar and synthesizer part, and then the bass comes in, and then the vocals. The bass line here is excellent, and the chorus is done very well. The CD then moves on to Grand Designs, one of the CDs grand designs. Grand Designs, again, has a very noticeable bass line. The drumming is a little bit more noticeable, and the synthesizers covey the songs theme. The CD then moves on to Manhattan Project, my favorite song on the CD, with an excellent sound. This song relies heavily on synthesizers, but they compliment the song very well. Some of the guitar parts are very subtle, but very good. The chorus is also one of Rush's best, and the cool orchestral part in the song before the end is awesome.
The CD then seems to make a bit of a shift. Marathon doesn't begin as heavily synthed as the earlier songs on the CD. It has a rolling bass line, and immediate vocals. This is my second favorite song on the CD, and another one of Rush's best.

"We sometimes catch a window...a Glimpse of what's Beyond"
Let me start by saying I do enjoy this album. As the title suggests, yes this album does sound more like rush appealing to the masses. An Extremely well produced, polished, circa 1985 rock album. I have heard some say this is where they stopped listening to Rush. Oh no Rush with a Orchestra! Listen to that gospel angelic synth sound in Marathon! Blasphemy! What the... is that some kind of new band from Africa?
If you know Rush from Tom Sawyer or Spirit of Radio, you may say this to yourself. I Know I did! The first 10 times I listened to this album I didn't care for it much.(except for the last track Mystic Rythyms) I felt in my mind that Rush had finally taken the plunge into pop synth ugliness. My Rush would never sound like...or like that other band...Hey wait a minute, it is polished, it is a little cheesy sometimes, but it still dosen't sound like any other band out there. That is why it is Rush.
After sometime this album's uniqueness captivated me. A really great album to set the volume on medium and not really try to over analyze. Don't even try to listen to it. Don't get your neck stretched out to headbang. Just let it be a subtle background music to the drive home from work, and it will do the job.Guarenteed!
Middletown Dreams is my Favorite track on the album. Geddy's voice has never sounded better.Marathon is an inspiring tune really gives hope to people in desperate situations. Mystic Rythms is a Haunting song that captures a magical moment in the band's career. The only songs that don't quite hold up would have to be Territories that can be downright Cheesy. The Big Money loses it's apeal after repeated listings. The rest of the album is strong material. Get it and Enjoy. BoggieBamph!

Rush's 13th album Power Windows was released in October of 1985. The album marked a few changes. First, the band decided to record in England instead of their native Canada for the first time since 1978's Hemispheres. Second, the band switched co-producers to Peter Collins. The result, a much more up album than its dark predecessor Grace Under Pressure. Most of the tracks on this album are in major chords save two. This album kicks off with a rock radio and concert staple The Big Money. The song is another excellent example of why Rush is one of the greatest bands ever. The video was a great video and was a single released from the album. The rest of the album is superb as well. The second track Grand Designs is great too. Manhattan Project is a great poignant song about the creation of the Atomic Bomb and proved Rush could write songs about things that happened in history. The first half closer Marathon is a superb track about trying to maintai staying power in life. The second half starts with Territories, a song about the conflict of whose territory is better than the others. Middletown Dreams follows and is a great song. Emotion Detector is another superb example of Rush at their finest all around with drummer Neil Peart writing some of the best lyrics I have ever heard and Alex Lifeson's guitar kicking ass. The finale Mystic Rhythms is a song that is truly a mystical experience with superb bass work and keyboards and vocals from Geddy Lee. The album is a classic today and was another Top 20 Platinum platter for the band. This album is another Rush classic. Highly recommended!
